The HP Color LaserJet CP1215 is a simple, single-function laser printer designed to fit comfortably in a small business work group. At $299, its unobtrusive footprint and excellent quality color and black output would have made an excellent alternative...

Easy installation; prints high-quality color documents; supports manual duplexing; small footprint.

Expensive; not compatible with Mac OS; slow color prints; lacks LCD display; ships with bite-size cartridges; fixed resolution.

The Color LaserJet CP1215 is HP's entry-level printer built to serve small workgroups, but it suffers from frustratingly slow print speeds, a missing LCD screen, and other problems. Your $299 will go much further with the Dell 1320c, another color...

If you didn't work it out already, it's a colour laser printer, just spelt incorrectly. They'll work it out eventually.

The HP Color LaserJet CP1215 is an inexpensive color laser printer that gives good color prints but is a bit on the slower side.

Inexpensive ; Good Color Prints ; Low Cost of Running

Slow Printing Speed ; Average Text Print Quality

If you are looking for an affordable color laser printer that can give photo prints comparable to an inkjet photo printer and you are not that concerned about printing speed, than you should go for the HP CP1215 printer.
